Are margarines and butters gluten free? Are there specific brands I should be looking for if there is gluten in them?

Thanks!

100% pure butter should be fine, if you can have dairy. Many margarines are okay, too. Here are a few of the name brands that are safe, but always read the labels anyhow.

Blue Bonnet

Brummel & Brown spread

Canoleo 100% canola margarine

Corman Light! Butter

Earth Balance natural buttery spread

Fleischman's

Hain Margarine: Soft safflower, safflower, unsalted safflower

Heart Beat Foods- Smart Balance

I can't believe it's not butter - all varieties

Imperial - all varieties

Mazola

Mrs. Filberts

Nucoa

Parkay

Promise

Shamrock margarine

Shedd's

Soy Garden

God bless,

Mariann

Mariann: Are any of those gluten-free margarines also dairy free? I can't put peanut butter on everything. :blink: Although I love olive oil on most vegies, is there a gluten-free/CF margarine or butter substitute I can use for my occasional baked potato. (However, I prefer a good red potato rolled in parsley and olive oil any day! :P ) Has anyone tried the other nut butters, cashew or almond? Which do you like with what?

Butter is without question gluten-free. Can anybody here name a magarine that has gluten? I've never found one.

Richard, I have a question about butter. I only recently noticed that the store brand I was buying listed "cream, and natural flavoring". Do you have any idea what that natural flavoring is? I switched to a brand that was just pure cream, but I was curious. Thanks.

Burdee,

My family is also off dairy and the margarine we use is Nucoa. It comes in a tub and in cubes and it says on the package that it "contains no milk or whey". We haven't had any problems with it.

There are very few margarines out there that are truely dairy free. Most contain Casein, Lactose or Whey.

God bless,

Mariann

According to my gluten-free/CF diet shopping guide these are safe for gluten & dairy free diets:

Fleischmann's:Soft Margarine in a tub, Soft Light Sticks, Unsalted in a tub, Unsalted stick

Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread

Smart Balance

Smart Beat

Shedd's Willow Run Spread (in sticks and tubs)

Hain Safflower Oil Margarine

Willow Run Soybean Margarine

I can only Nucoa and some kinds of Fleischmanns in my small town. I haven't tried the other brands, since we like Nucoa.

God bless,

Mariann

BURDEE

Yep, I've had peanut, cashew, almond, hazelnut, and sunflower butter. I really didn't like the hazelnut butter very much, and the cashew butter was alright. I do like the almond butter, and will sometimes get it instead of peanut butter. The sunflower butter was much thinnner, and it was alright, but I don't tend to voluntarily get it any more. ;-)

Thanks again, Mariann. I'll look for those.

Tarnalberry: Thanks for your opinion. Now if only someone would make macadamia nut butter, I'd have my favorite nut in a spread. ;) Maybe I should check the Mauna Loa site. I tried pure almond butter as well as pure peanut butter and didn't really like either. I LOVE Skippy's super chunk, so maybe I'll give those other nut butters another try.

You could always make your own macadamia nut butter. You'd probably want a Cuisinart type food processor, rather than a blender, but you just put the nuts in and go!

I use earth balance in/on everything. It is very "buttery" and it says on the outside that it is gluten free (and it's vegan). Hope this helps!

    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
